Feeding Positions

There is not a "right" way to hold your baby when you're breastfeeding. What works for one mom might not work for another. The right way is the comfortable way. Try several different positions and see which is best for you and your baby. Make sure your baby has latched on the right way.

Make Adjustments

It may also be good a good idea to change positions or make adjustments so that you and your baby stay comfortable. Babies know what to do with just a little help from you.

• Take a moment to calm your baby.

• Hold your baby closer.

• Bring your baby to you...don't lean over.

• Turn your baby to better face you.

• Use pillows, rolled-up towels, or blankets to make YOU more comfortable.
